Business Impact of COVID-19 - Teleconference event - 29 April 2020

While we adapt to enable the new normal, ie, Work From Home(WFH), this trend is likely to continue for many businesses even after people are no longer required to stay at home due to coronavirus pandemic.

Employees now working remotely are finding ways to get the job done, for example, ensuring that the growing number of online shoppers are satisfied. 

This dynamic means that trusted, self-motivated employees are more valuable than ever. Meanwhile, with information in the cloud and with offices and stores underused, commercial real estate will likely be cheaper in the coming months. 

These are some of the few observations and insights that were shared by a panel of six entrepreneurs at the event- “Business Impact of COVID-19” held on 29th April 2020.

The event was held via teleconference along with the 6 alumni entrepreneurs who graduated from UW Bothell’s School of Business.

Subodh Parulekar, co-founder and CEO of AFour Technologies was proudly hosted as one of the panelists at this teleconference event who provided a real-world, real-time report on some of the impacts the pandemic is having in the business community and also participated in the question-and-answer session.

Everyone on the panel had insights to share, including some stand-out quotes.

SANDSTONE: Virtual data assistant for your organization - 30 April 2020

 

AFour Technologies launched its own virtual data assistant -SANDSTONE on 30th April 2020 and is now available for various organizations.

As a key decision-maker it is important for the business stakeholder/top management person to do efficient and effective decision making, provide timely approvals; plan, manage and track the key meetings and the key events. The better decision can come by analyzing more information. However, it needs more time which is a very valuable resource.

AFour Virtual Data Assistant presents you all information from your organization which you need for decision making (e.g. Revenue pipeline, profitability trends, cashflow burn-rate/runway) and allows you to play with various parameters to analyze the impact on other parameters; presents you the pending approvals and help to plan and track your key business events. Voice interaction and other interesting AI/ML features make it more intuitive and humanly interface compared to the dull and static dashboards full of data.
